Samsung Launches Samsung Z
Ever since late 2012, we’ve been hearing rumors of Samsung possibly taking a step back from Android and moving on with its own mobile platform, Tizen. This step came with the second iterations of the Galaxy Gear wich saw Samsung drop the Galaxy moniker and use Tizen as its OS of choice. Samsung takes another step with Tizen, announcing the Samsung Z, a Tizen powered device headed to Russia ahead of a global launch slated for Q3 of this year.
The device comes with impressive specifications. It’s slated to come with a 4.8-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display with a quad-core processor clocked at 3.2 GHz which promises impressive performance and speed. It also comes packed with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage which is expandable with microSD cards up to 64GB. When it comes down to the optics coming with the phone, it comes with 8 megapixel rear camera and a 2.1 megapixel front facing camera. The device is, as mentioned before, going to be powered by Tizen OS version 2.2.1. All of this is powered by a 2,600 mAh battery. If the pictures are any indication, the phone looks to be really impressive design wise with Samsung’s signature faux-leather plastic back.
